Bicycle Maintenance & Safety

First off, we hope everyone is safe and healthy during these strange days and months. 2020 hasn’t been anything like we had expected. On the upside bicycling has become extremely popular. Bike stores have been selling out of bicycles! That’s great, right?

We think now is a great time to help educate new cyclists. There’s plenty to learn: maintenance, skills, safety – and we’d like to get this ball rolling. We’re planning on putting together some easy video tutorials and would love to know what you think! We’re also open to sharing other bike maintenance and safety tutorials and videos, so if you have some favorites please put them in the comments!
